MORE ZINE WORKSHOPS AT INTRA THIS SUMMER

it’s time for another set of zine workshops with Confluence Medway at INTRA! the first one is THIS SUNDAY!

Over 3 sessions these monthly workshops will guide you in making your own pamphlet/zine or chapbook. The first workshop will introduce you to what a zine is, the second workshop will be guiding you in getting contents together for your own zine/pamphlet and concentrating on editing and layout. The final workshop will deal with printing it.

Once you have attended these workshops you will be able to use the printing facilities to work on your own zines in our monthly drop-in open afternoon sessions which happen on the same day as the workshop.

You do not have to attend all days – but if not you’ll need to do some homework so you have something ready to print 😉
Places are free but space is limited, so please email if you want to attend. Follow the Confluence page on Facebook for regular updates.

DAY 2 – Sunday 8th July 11am – 2pm

sorry this post is a bit late, it’s been quite the week, our internet broke at home and it’s not getting fixed til WEDNESDAY now (how will i cope) and trying to write these blog posts on my phone is kind of a nightmare, especially if i’m using my precious phone data instead of wi-fi. better late than never though, am I right? ANYWAY, for more info about Northwest Zine Fest please visit their website or the Facebook event cos sadly i can’t copy the darn text on my phone. i’ve still got some pricing and other distro prep to do before i can try to fall asleep on this sofa.

Glasgow Zine Fest’s annual Zine Fair is back!

The very best of self publishing and homegrown dissent in the UK, for two days at CCA.

Our zine fair will run from 12:00-7:00pm, with an accessible hour from 11am-12:00pm for those with mobility needs or those who may have difficulty with large crowds.

Glasgow Zine Fest operates as an accessible festival – here some of the ways we ensure inclusion for all participants:

We are based in CCA, Glasgow where there is a lift to all levels, accessible toilets, street level access and screening rooms have a hearing loop system.

All events at Glasgow Zine Fest offer a concessionary rate for unwaged, low waged or anyone who has a disability – these rates are available on all priced tickets and we do not require proof upon purchase. Complimentary tickets are available for any carers who wish to attend.

All screenings will have subtitles and talks/panel discussions will have BSL interpretation.

Content notes will be produced and publicised ahead of any scheduled event that may have content that could be troublesome for any guests attending.

Toilets during the festival are gender neutral.

Glasgow Zine Fest operates a policy of tolerance, inclusion and accessibility – any participants or guests of the festival are asked to follow this policy. Anyone found to be making anyone feel uncomfortable and acting in contradiction to our ethos will be removed and will not be allowed to return to the festival.

If at any point during Glasgow Zine Fest you feel uncomfortable, please do contact us either face to face or at glasgowzinefest@gmail.com

my megabus up to glasgow is already tonight (going early for some extra quality time with my glasgow pals) so the shop is closed until i’m back next wednesday. i have lots of new stuff in stock in the last few days and i’ll probably pick up more stuff at the zine fest, so there will be a massive distro update some time next week (probably at the weekend, to be honest…)
